The Physiology of Misfortune - Overview of Aces and Trauma Informed Care (A 3 part breakout)

Jane Gillette DDS (Part 1)

Bronfenrenner's Ecological Systems Theory provides a framework for understanding the complex multi-level determinants across a life-course that can result in profound health disparities. On the person-level, the stress of social disadvantage and toxic stress exerts epigenetic changes of which the young developing brain is the most susceptible. In addition to adversity and social stratification, child neurodevelopment and resiliency may also be significantly impacted by the presence of genetic polymorphisms in genes that code for the modulation of stress responses.  With understanding of the bio ecological model of health and gene-environment responses to adversity, public health professionals will have the foundational understanding needed for the framing of the ACE Study and it’s application.

Leslie Lee (Part 2)

The Adverse Childhood Experience (ACE) Study is one of the most important studies showing the association between childhood maltreatment and increased risk for poor adult health.  By taking a closer look at the ACE study and how abuse, neglect and household function can cause social, emotional and cognitive impairment, participants will gain an understanding of how trauma can affect a person over a lifetime.

Nathan Stahley BS (Part 3)

The most recent Yellowstone County Community Health Needs Assessment and Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) identified mental health and substance abuse as one of three high community priorities.  To tackle this priority, social service and health care organizations have come together using common strategies and goals.  Under the brand of Healthy By Design, Billings Clinic, St. Vincent Healthcare, RiverStone Health, United Way of Yellowstone County, The Center for Children and Families and Walla Walla University – Billings Campus have taken on a project titled the Development of Systems for Trauma-Informed Education and Supportive Solutions (DE-STRESS).  This is a three year (9/14-8/17) grant funded project through the Department of Health and Human Services, Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health.

The goal of the project is to use a multi-pronged approach to inform, influence and develop a continuum of care. This final component of the presentation will describe the developing approach in Yellowstone County and demonstrate some of the challenges, successes and lessons learned as the project moves forward.  In addition, specific approaches will be shared highlighting how Yellowstone County is responding to ACEs and trauma.

Collaborative Skills to Advance a Health in All Policies Approach for Public Health- (Part 1) Joyce Gaufin BS

Attendees will learn the value of collaboration in working on effective partnerships. Attendees will participate in team-based activities that will help to demonstrate the value of shared decision making. There are eight predictors for successful collaborations, and several characteristics of teams that fail. Attendees will work in small groups during this session. Research and techniques utilized in sessions were developed by Dr. Carl Larson, Professor Emeritus, Denver University. Dr. Larson has researched, lectured and written on creating and leading effective teams and collaborations.

This is a 3 hour breakout. From 10:30 - 11:30, cont. at 11:45 - 12:45 and 1:45 - 2:45

For our public health agencies not to just survive, but thrive, we need to be constantly evaluating our processes to improve how we do business. In order to be in the position to thrive, we need to integrate community health planning, strategic planning, performance management, and quality improvement so these elements become institutionalized. This break-out session will explain how these processes can make our health departments better and put us in a position to be thrive and be leaders in our communities.

Collective Impact in Action
Heather Fink MA, Shawn Hinz BS and April Keippel MA

With public health and healthcare collaboration in place since 2001, the Alliance of Billings Clinic, RiverStone Health, and St. Vincent Healthcare have made strides together to impact health in Yellowstone County. Since initial efforts to work on uninsured and underinsured followed by collaboration on a Community Crisis Center and a medication assistance program, the Alliance moved to collective sponsorship of the Yellowstone County Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA). Following two cycles of collaborating on the needs assessment, responsive work began to take shape around the priority of healthy weight and was called Healthy By Design. This included activation of a community coalition that established workgroups focused one event recognition, built environment, healthy weight, healthy equity and worksite wellness. Policy, systems and environmentally focused, this work has seen success such as a gardeners' market and a complete streets policy. The transition to diversify work in order to address other identified priorities has begun, affording the opportunity for additional structure and framework.

Healthy By Design's purpose to make the healthy choice the easy choice work has now grown to embrace additional community-identified priorities including access to health services and mental health and substance abuse. Using the existing overarching cross-sector community coalition as a successful example, community partners and efforts are beginning to converge around these additional priorities.

Recognizing the five conditions of collective impact including: common agenda, shared measurement, mutually reinforced activities, continuous communication and backbone support we continue to build and refine our infrastructure and approaches to best move forward to create a collective impact backbone structure in support of a healthier Yellowstone County.

With the establishment of a collective impact backbone structure in Yellowstone County, driven by the Community Health Needs Assessment process, effective work in multiple community-identified priority areas will be realized. We are now testing a framework and process that moves us through the various phases of collective impact and are seeking to address such components as: coalition support, communications planning, evaluation planning, and flexibility and sustainability.

Essential Skills for Collaborative Leadership(This is Part 2 of a two-part series. Either session can be attended independently.) Joyce Gaufin BS

Effective leaders in a collaborative environment must practice a set of specific skills to create an environment that is open and credible. This workshop will help you to define and appreciate the characteristics for collaborative leaders. Attendees will also learn techniques to diffuse difficult situations, and strategies to prevent "energy drains". The research and techniques for this session were developed by Dr. Carl Larson, Professor Emeritus, Denver University. Dr. Larson is an international expert in strategies to help create effective teams and collaborative partnerships.

Talking 'Bout My Generation--and Your Generation Too!Joyce Gaufin BS

There will soon be five generations working together in our organizations. Each generation has distinctive characteristics that help to define them and the way that they approach work and leadership. As the "Silent Generation" leaves and the "Millennials" assume positions of power, developing an understanding of the differences is the first step to creating a mutually beneficial work environment. This session will help you learn about generational differences, and strategies to help build bridges to reduce the "generation gap".

3:00 – 4:00 pm  The two  keynote addresses below will draw the environmental and epi links  for the workforce that will be in attendance at the conference The measles presentation be developed using the landmark study and bridging the information to the recent event of measles in Disneyland and the impact that it could have on Montana.

Environmental Health Research Projects in Montana Communities – Tony Ward PhD

Throughout western Montana, several valley communities have air quality issues related to residential wood combustion during the winter months. This presentation will describe several studies that have been conducted to evaluate the extent of this environmental health issue in western Montana, as well as describe interventions that have been employed at both the community and residential levels. 

Resilient Individuals and Communities: Lessons from Dr. Peter Panum’s Epidemiology and Community Based Participatory Research in Denmark- Craig Molgaard Ph.D. MPH

A landmark study of a measles epidemic in the small and rural population of the Faroe Islands that signaled the end of the miasma theory, Panum’s work illustrates the linkages that were then common between epidemiology and community based participatory research. These linkages allowed concepts of folk contagion and folk quarantine to be noted and incorporated into Panum’s report to the Danish government. This report focused on the “hygenic forces that were proceeding from the conditions on the islands...and to show the influences which each of these forces in particular exerts on the state of health in general of the inhabitants." Core Competencies for Public Health-
